Since Santa failed to bring one to me, I recently treated myself to an authentic cocktail shaker. Shamefully, I admit I had been using a repurposed mayo jar to shake my libations. I did not realize what I was missing. Forgive me. Little did I know, this amazing cocktail shaker is capable of lowering the temperature of my cocktail to a perfect, tasty icy cold.
So far, I haven't strayed from the Cosmopolitan. It's nearly Valentine's Day. I keep admiring the color of this cocktail and thinking how appropriate it would to start off a Valentine's Day dinner with one of these.
There are many versions of this cocktail. I'm sharing my favorite with you here. Do you have a favorite? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section!
